Has anyone else signed up for this yet?

I went through it a little bit today...I can't believe the amount of content. I ended up doing the bundle to get ESPN and hulu too.

I will be watching The Mandelorian tonight.

Yup... I did. Unfortunately Disney had me on the ropes because of my interest in the Mandalorian. I'm not a Disney fan but I was hoping the Mandalorian would be worth it. It delivered... better than any Star Wars content that has been released so far. If this first episode is just a taste/intro of what is to come then I'm good with my purchase.

#3 1 year ago

I did as well.

Verizon is offering 1 year subscription for wireless and 5G home subscribers. I jumped on that

#5 1 year ago

When they had that D23 promo this past Summer where it worked out to like $3.90/mo for the first 3 years, it was pretty hard not to sign up, so we did. Watched The Mandalorian last night because I suspected they'd have outages today when everyone tries to log on at once (and they have). Directing was a bit flat, but it looks like "classic" first trilogy Star Wars and has great characters so far. Strong start.

Ive been on the fence about getting it. Do you guys find it worth it so far? Are there lots of movies old and new?

I'm not much of a movie person so I won't be subscribing.

There's a lot of movies, but none of the "controversial" old Disney ones like Song of the South or the racist cartoons. Gotta scrub history.

The original trilogy Star Wars movies look like a new transfer that's very nice, but it's unfortunately the "Special Edition" cut with all the George Lucas screwing around (Greedo shoots first, etc). Too bad they didn't put up the actual original releases with a great transfer. Disney owns it all now, so I don't know why they can't offer "Star Wars Classic" versions with the transfer upgrade.

Mandalorian and a few movies here and there alone looks like it will be worth the $140 we paid for 3 years of Disney plus. They also have the first episode of the Jeff Goldblum travel show up, which looks quirky and fun, but I haven't watched that yet.

Singed way back with D23 offer. 3 years was pretty cheap in the scheme of themes.
Mandalorian not working a few times i clicked today. Didnt see a few films, Solo, new lion king. Dumbo and lady and tramp or up.

Pretty sure at least original Dumbo is there. Thought I saw it on the listing last night...

My goof. The new Dumbo and Lady and Tramp are there. Im not seeing New Lion King or Mary Poppins and Solo. I bet it will all pop in by end of month.

I was roped in by the uber-cheap 3 year deal as well. There's at least a bit of content I'm interested in checking out, but I might not have gone for it if half my household weren't in elementary school. How else are they going to learn about Davy Crockett?

It'd be cool if they eventually expand into some of the darker territory the Marvel shows on Netflix were exploring (Punisher, Jessica Jones, etc.)

#13 1 year ago

Any of the 70s Mickey Mouse Club? My wife’s cousin was on that show.

Think of Disney what you will, but they're not total idiots!

#15 1 year ago

I have paid for most of the content several times over so have no reason so give them more money. If the Mandelorian and Obi Wan turn out to be great I'll grab a month and binge them.

#16 1 year ago

First year was free with verizon unlimited plan so I'll try it out.

#17 1 year ago

I was reading yesterday, that anything with adult content (ie - Deadpool) won’t be on Disney+, but rather will still be found on Netflix.

I was hoping to find the Donald Duck World War 2 shorts. I didn’t see them on there. A while back, they were on DVD. Guess I’ll need to look for them in that format.

Mandalorian is the reason I would want it too.

I already have hulu. Do I need to buy Disney + separately?

#19 1 year ago

I did the D23 way back when. Looking forward to binging a lot of old movies.

*bingeing?

Depends which Hulu you have.

The bundle I got comes with a lower subscription of Hulu. If you have the basic version, I think you can upgrade to the bundle and get ESPN+ with it. I’m really looking forward to watching NFL Primetime again.

#21 1 year ago

Walt sure had a way with words. Amazing how one mans dreams are what we see today. Proof that anything truly is possible.

Loving Disney+ as far as content goes. I worked from home today so I've had stuff streaming from it all day in the background.

I had some issues this morning getting signed in but it's been great this afternoon. I'm expecting some issues tonight as people get off work and really sit down to check it out.

The extras they've included with some of the movies are pretty neat.

They may not be idiots, but they're not exactly nice people either.

If you've never seen it,bits a must watch. I bought it on dvd.

i was under the impression that NFL/NBA live games were NOT included with ESPN+

#26 1 year ago
Quoted from Daditude:

I bought the Disney+ Bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ and I already have the Basic Hulu plan. You have to use the same email address for Hulu and Disney Plus, and Hulu will continue to be billed regularly. You will see a $5.99 credit each month on your Disney+ Account for your Hulu subscription.

ESPN has the pass-through built in, so there is no separate process there if you don't already subscribe to ESPN+.

Correct. NFL Primetime is a studio show.

I guess it makes sense that Deadpool and Family Guy are out, given their target market. I don't care much about those two in particular (seen the Deadpools, not a Family Guy guy), but there go my hopes of seeing the Punisher series from Netflix restarted on Disney+. Found this in an article just now, sounds like you'll be watching Deadpool on Hulu now:

"There will be nothing on Disney+ that’s not branded or family friendly," Kevin Mayer, the chairman of Disney's direct to consumer division, said during a recent preview event at the Disney studios here. Instead, Disney is positioning Hulu as the adult streaming alternative to Disney+, and it will likely be the home, Mayer says, for R-rated content such as the "Deadpool" films, produced by Fox but starring Marvel characters.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

I was hoping to find the Donald Duck World War 2 shorts. I didn’t see them on there.

I would guess they'll be very careful throwing up anything from that era as they'll have to review it carefully to make sure there's no blatant racism. It's all interesting stuff from a historic perspective, but if they're trying to set Disney+ up as a service you can let your kids watch unattended, they'll have to do some curating.

#30 1 year ago

So far, I'm really enjoying it! My grandson and I have been binge watching Pixar stuff.

#31 1 year ago

I'm in,
Didn't get the D23 deal but do have the Verizon one. Heading home now to see if I can load it on the Firestick and Sony TV.

Yes I'm excited about the Mandelorian and the Obi Wan somewhat, but am really looking forward to the Marvel/Avengers shows:
- Falcon & the Winter Soldier
- WandaVision
- Loki
- Hawkeye
- What If?

Also Ms Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk...

Plus I have two daughters, might try to take them through all the old Classic Disney cartoons starting with Snow White.

Take my money Disney!

Disappointed there are only 25 or so cinema shorts out of the 500-ish they made. But that's Disney nowadays, at the parks, too. Moving out the things that made them famous to make more space for the things that sell now. They have the resources a thousand times over to take care of both. Hopefully more will be added in time.

They are taking the “Vault” approach that they do with their Blu-ray’s and DVDs (and previously VHS). Controlled scarcity, to keep you subscribing beyond the first month or so. Pretty good idea between this and the new content. Netflix kind of does this too, because content expires, but in their case they don’t generally own the actual content which disappears.

#35 1 year ago

With two young children - how could I not sign up for it. Watching with my Daughther right now. She is enjoying the content. I'm kicking myself for already buying all of the movies! We will be keeping the service and Prime. Goodbye Netflix.

#36 1 year ago

Disney + is really going to change tv in many ways. I always liked skimming through channels when nothing was on and than catching a marvel movie or a Star Wars movie. But do I want to buy Disney? I don’t think I’ll turn it on to watch SW or a marvel movie that I have seen countless times. But, just for the new content, I might be dragged in as well or wait till the Madalorian has played all its episodes and then subscribe for a month. What to do.

First Episode of Mandalorian is Epic!
Whole family loved it. Can't wait for episode 2 to drop.
I also think we shouldn't post spoilers in this thread.

I plan on getting it before Christmas and have it starting in the holidays .... and yes - everyone please avoid giving spoilers

#39 1 year ago

Picked up the 3 year D23 deal. I also have the Hulu premium plan. I don’t remember seeing a bundle offer, but I signed up 2 months ago.

#40 1 year ago

They played with the Han and Greedo scene in Star Wars. It isn’t as jarring...Han should shoot first. That’s how the movie was made.

Disney owns everything Star Wars now. Please, just please release the original movies cleaned up for high definition.

There's another episode this Friday, so two this week.

Holy crap George Lucas is still messing with the original trilogy, too. Checked it out on D+ and when the emperor is shocking Luke at the end of Empire now, rather than just picking up the Emperor and throwing him down the shaft, Vader says a REALLY LAME "No. Noooo" before picking the Emperor up and tossing him overboard, which is out of place and very reminiscent of the terrible scene where he gets off the frankenstein table in the prequels and goes "Noooooooooo..." Ugh.

I keep hoping. Apparently Kathleen Kennedy has said stated that Disney “is not going to touch” George’s edits. Ah well, maybe if she moves on at some point the next head of LucasFilm will have a different view on things.

#43 1 year ago

A year free with Verizon wireless so yeah. Signed up tonight. Kids will be excited.

#44 1 year ago

my wife and kids have been watching Disney+ all day. It’s been a cold rainy day, she is excited to watch the old movies

I noticed that lame “Noooooooooooo” when I got the 6 episode Blu Ray set a few years ago. Still So mad about that.

Mandelorian was enjoyable. Lots of old Star Wars stuff mixed in

No, they are just milking the Lucas purchase for every dime they can - and fucking it up as much as possible.

#49 1 year ago

But they nailed the MCU!

#50 1 year ago

Just watched it and it’s so terrible it’s kinda good. It’s very much an 80’s tv show. I think to enjoy it you have to watch it with kids or get baked with your buddies.
